It was a great experience you take a walk through the Barnes families life and you see so many amazing things! Their story is a great historic tale of New England history. We had an amazing tour guide she explained so much to us and all the things used collected and stories she was able to give was a beautiful walk through history. We plan to visit for their other exhibits.

Bonnie, our personal tour guide, was amazing. She was a wealth of information as well as generous with her time. The museum is beautiful and a must see for history bluffs.

Excellent!, Bonnie was amazing. She is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Visiting the Barnes Museum is a fabulous experience. Highly recommend. My grandkids ages 12 and 14 are the perfect age and they really appreciated it.

Our docent was the director for the museum. She was very knowledgeable and took her time showing off the inside. There are many additional activities that they run throughout the year that I may attend. A hidden gem.

About Barnes Museum

Southington's past is perfectly preserved within the restored home of Bradley and Leila Barnes—known today as the Barnes Museum—, where guests can peruse 17 rooms filled with antique furniture and personal belongings dating back to 1836. There, guests may feel they've stepped back in time, whether they're admiring the lace dresses, top hats, and other fashions of the times, or perusing Captain Andrew Upson's Civil War letters to find examples of old-timey emoticons. Even the plants surrounding the house have became a historical collection of sorts. A local Eagle Scout recently recreated the house's gardens as they were in 1922, guided by an article published in Country Homes magazine.
